Multi-Sattelites Using Global Network: From Hiyoshi to the World
The borderless international community is connected, regardless of location, via a network. This is accelerating the pace of activities conducted in the “cloud”. Headquartered on Keio University’s Hiyoshi Campus, KMD conducts dynamic research and education in a collaborative, global network bringing together numerous satellite facilities and partner institutions across Japan and around the world. The various locations communicate with each other daily using a high-definition online video conference system. Collaboration with people located in different parts of the world ensures that research and educational activities remain on the cutting edge, and that KMD communicates its ideas to the world as a member of the international community.he various locations communicate with each other daily using a high-definition online video collaboration system.

Keio Osaka City Campus
Keio Osaka City Campus is KMD’s base of operations in the Kansai Area. KMD has its own laboratory for research on the City Campus.
Keio-NUS CUTE Center (Singapore)
Keio University established the Keio-NUS CUTE Center in Singapore in collaboration with KMD and the National University of Singapore (NUS). Formed at the invitation of the government of Singapore’s Interactive and Digital Media R&D Programme Office, the Center conducts advanced research in next- generation media and communications in a strategic partnership with NUS.
Universal content platform for public transportation networks
Since 2012, the CUTE Center has collaborated with KMD on empirical research aimed at the development of autonomous, decentralized universal digital signage platforms for public transportation networks. The project members developed a platform to distribute content based on probe information, location information, and other peripheral environment information in public buses on the Kent Ridge campus of NUS. The platform detects location information instantly and accurately, and uses that informa- tion to link positioning and environmental information.
Cyber Living Lab and Superhuman Sports Lab (National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation)
The research wing of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation is home to two advanced projects; the Cyber Living Lab that applies virtual reality and robotics technologies to the creation of new media experiences for the living spaces of the future, and the Superhuman Sports Lab that creates new sports that leverage technology to enhance the human body’s abilities. Both are conducted in collaboration with visitors to the museum from companies and from the general public.
